Quick, Easy Chocolate Covered Pretzels & Strawberries

This weekend I hosted Easter for the first time. At first, I was distraught because I am by no means a cook, nor do I have any desire to be.  As you know, everyone expects a nice meal on Easter.  Luckily, my mom stepped in to help by preparing a ham. I also had help from other generous family members who volunteered to bring side dishes. They know that I am a Martha Stewart when it comes to detail, event planing, and crafts, but lack Martha's ability to create delicious dishes.

I thought long and hard about what I contribute to the Easter celebration beside the use of my home. 

Here is what I came up with:

Okay, so the last photo isn't super clear... definitely does not do the treats justice. I do promise that they were delicious though.   Plus, they were so easy to make. I purchase baking chocolate in a block. I melted the chocolate in the microwave (so easy) and coated the pretzels and strawberries to my heart's desire. Lastly, I topped them with sprinkles - pastel colored stars for the pretzels and chocolate sprinkles for the strawberries.

Both treats were a big hit with the family, especially my little cousins!

I couldn't help sharing this photo of my cousins. 

It has rained for weeks in Kentucky which means my lawn is a muddy mess, but we couldn't forgo the Easter egg hunt.  Quick fix - put plastic bags over their shoes for instant galoshes. My seven-year old cousin even asked if she could have matching bags... Oh, that makes my heart smile.  She is truly a Simply Sarah Style girl. Notice they are also utilizing the very glamorous plastic shopping bags instead of baskets. Lucky for them, their baskets were too small to hold all the eggs the Easter bunny hid for their hunt.

What dish did you prepare for Easter this year?
